There’s a Potential $30 Trillion Opportunity in the Metaverse

The metaverse may be one of the biggest stories of 2022. Thrust into the spotlight by Mark Zuckerberg, the metaverse “is a sci-fi concept whereby humans put on some sort of headset or smart glasses that allows them to live, work and play in a virtual world much like the one depicted in the ‘Ready Player One’ movie,” says CNBC. Even billionaire Orlando Bravo, co-founder and managing partner of private equity firm Thoma Bravo is a fan, added CNBC. In fact, he says, “It’s investable and it’s going to be very big.” While it may take some time for the metaverse to go mainstream, Emergen Research says it could be worth up to $828.95 billion by 2028. Others, such as Matthew Ball, the CEO of Venture Capital firm Epyllion says the metaverse could be a $10 trillion to $30 trillion market. All of which could be beneficial for Corp. (NEO:COIN)(OTCQB:SMURF), which is the only public company that owns metaverse real estate, Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ:COIN), Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:FB), Galaxy Digital Holdings (TSX:GLXY)(OTC:BRPHF), and Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT).

Even better, corporate America is jumping all over the opportunity. According to The Guardian, “McDonald’s recently filed 10 trademark applications including one for a virtual restaurant that would deliver to an actual home. Samsung recently launched a new smartphone on the metaverse – although not without some problems. Even the staid and traditional accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has purchased virtual property on Sandbox.”

Look at Corp. (NEO:COIN)(OTCQB:SMURF), For Example Corp., a publicly-traded company that invests in Web3 crypto assets and builds businesses linked to the Metaverse, NFTs and Play-to-Earn Gaming, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Metaverse Group, has signed a letter of intent to acquire 20% ownership interest in Metaverse Architects. In addition, Metaverse Group will appoint a representative to the board of directors of Metaverse Architects. The transaction is expected to close in March.

Metaverse Architects is a leading design and event planning firm who specialize in 3D modeling and game development. Metaverse Architects have the ability to design and build across several Metaverse worlds including Decentraland, Sandbox, Pax World and NFT Worlds. Additionally, the virtual architecture firm has the capability of hosting events and creating virtual immersive experiences for brands.

In addition, Corp. now enables Metaverse Group to combine virtual real estate with virtual services, such as design and building. That now makes Corp. a one-stop shop for brands entering the metaverse. In fact, at some point, all brands will require a metaverse presence just like they need a website.

"We are pleased to combine forces with Metaverse Architects, the leading design and architecture firm in the Metaverse. Our partnership allows Metaverse Group to provide a host of services to our clients including events, NFT design and drops, and architecture design and services,” said Andrew Kiguel, CEO and Executive Chairman of Metaverse Group “We're excited to enhance the scope of what we offer with such a strong team to become a one-stop shop for all Metaverse needs."

Metaverse Architects is currently in the process of completing the Tower in Decentraland's Crypto Valley. The Tower will be used to host future crypto conferences and offer office rental spaces to companies looking for a presence in the Metaverse.
